Jeju Korea Restaurant. Bukit Indah. Jb |Johor Kaki Travels For Food
Our JB Korean BBQ hunt took us to Jeju Korea Restaurant inwards Bukit Indah (near the AEON Mall).
The sight within of a traditional Korean BBQ articulation - "elephant trunk" exhaust ducts , tabular array top charcoal grills in addition to sunken pits - ever excites me. Jeju has it all.
Two of us , nosotros went for Pork Set A. I was excited yesteryear the refer of Pork Neck inwards the menu.
Once nosotros placed our guild amongst the waiter , gratis barley tea was chop-chop served.
Moments after , the educate of banchan (small plates) arrived. There were 15 , aye 15 , minor dishes 😮 It's the almost release of minor plates that I convey seen in addition to thence far , inwards whatever Korean eating seat that I've tried in addition to thence far.
There's edible bean sprout , dark beans , spinach , kimchi , spicy long beans , spicy broccoli , mashed sweetness Irish Gaelic patato , spicy fish cake , braised egg , mushroom , wiener , spicy cucumber , fried tofu , fried anchovies , in addition to spicy radish. (But , none left whatever deep impression gustation wise.)
On the A assort platter , in that location were Samgyeopsal (unmarinaded pork belly) , Moksal (unmarinaded pork neck) in addition to Dwaeji Galbi (marinaded pork spare rib). At RM80++ , the 2-person BBQ meat platter at Jeju costs slightly to a greater extent than than average simply it comes amongst 3 dissimilar cuts of pork , all amongst overnice marbling which is slap-up for grilling.
For grilling , I convey an irrational bias inwards favour of hot stones , coal or charcoal. Don't similar electrical or gas burners 😝
The staff grills the pork in addition to cuts them into seize amongst teeth size pieces in i trial the meat turns golden dark-brown outside.
Initially , I was a lilliputian worried that nosotros powerfulness endure required to produce our ain cooking equally Jeju was amount solid (I wanted to overstep away on my hands unloose for taking photos 😄). It turned out , I needn't worry equally the staff handled everything inwards their stride efficiently in addition to smoothly. The staff all know their drills good in addition to handled the grill expertly.
Ssam or lettuce wrap. The pieces of grilled pork belly , cervix or spare rib were folded into a fresh lettuce foliage together amongst garlic , cutting chili in addition to spicy edible bean paste.
The combination of savoury , spicy , in addition to sweetness flavours was delicious. The mix of tender in addition to crunchy textures was interesting too.
I similar it that raw garlic in addition to light-green chili are served inwards cans , in addition to thence nosotros tin convey these to our heart's content inwards our ssam 😄
Pay RM5++ to a greater extent than to instruct this large bowl of savoury spicy kimchi soup amongst tofu cubes , drinking glass noodles in addition to pork belly slices inside. Perfect amongst apparently sweetness boiled rice.
Our pecker came to RM102.80 (SGD33.83). It's a slight premium compared to other Korean BBQ places inwards JB.
It's no fluke that Jeju is real construct clean in addition to comfortable. Once a batch of customers leaves , the whole crew springs on deck to construct clean the flooring in addition to tables amongst disinfectant earlier receiving the side yesteryear side grouping of customers. Very impressive.. quite touched genuinely yesteryear their dedication.
4-Star (out of 5). We similar the traditional Korean BBQ setup in addition to ambiance at Jeju. The service was friendly in addition to efficient fifty-fifty though Jeju was amount solid when nosotros were there. The 2-person educate comes amongst 3 good marbled cuts of pork , including pork neck. Fifteen minor plates is the almost that nosotros convey ever seen for banchan.
